Properties of the Pushforward Map on Test Functions, Measures and Distributions

Forskningsoutput: AvhandlingDoktorsavhandling (monografi)


The subject of this thesis is the pushforward map on compactly supported distributions induced by a smooth mapping. Being the adjoint of the natural pullback operation on the class of smooth functions, the pushforward map is always well-defined, and as such it must be regarded as one of the fundamental operations of distribution theory.

This thesis has two main aims: The first of these is to give a clear exposition of the properties of the pushforward map associated with a smooth map between open subsets of Euclidean space. The second aim is to investigate the connection between the pushforward by a function f and the asymptotic behavior at infinity of oscillatory integrals with f as phase function. Particular attention will be paid to Palamodov's conjecture (in the category of smooth functions), to which we give some partial answers.
